. >> joining me now is msnbc's joy reid and richard wolff, and the organizer at united we dream. joy, what is the main difference between the president's plan and the other introduced yesterday? >> well, the main difference is triggers that seems to be you can do whatever you want if there is a trigger. and for the republicans they believe you have to do significant border enforcement first, and whoever decides they have deemed enforcement to be sufficient then you can allow people to get a path to citizenship. so it is basically probation, the 11 million undocumented people in the country would be on probation, but wouldn't get the pathway to citizenship until this decision is made that enforcement is sufficient. >> let's listen to a little what the president said about being a nation of immigrants. >> unless you're one of the first immigrants, the natives, you came from a land of immigrants, the germans, the irish, the polish, the russians, the chinese, the japanese, the huddled masses who came through ellis island on one coast. all of those folks, before there were us, there were them.
overexcited. let's stay on one issue for a moment. i put to richard wolffe the possibility that speaker boehner is going to resign. >> i would be astonished. for all sorts of reasons. first off, there has been no serious challenger. it's important if you're going to fire someone or have someone step down, that someone else wants the job. and nobody else wants this job. this isn't just about john boehner. it's about the caucus itself. admittedly boehner has not done a very good job of that. when you hear republicans say he hasn't delivered what he promised, there's the part where he hasn't delivered but there's the fact he made promises he could not deliver in all seriousness. he hasn't had unity in his leadership team. i know there are competing theories, maybe there's some makavellian strategy this is one big group. i don't believe that either. but you've got to have someone to replace him. >> were you not listening that this is probably led by eric cantor? if you've ever met him, he wants nothing more than to become the speaker of the house. i think that's what the move is going to be

president and executive editor of msnbc.com, richard wolffe is with us. hello, richard. >> good morning. >> how are you? and we have the chairman of deutsche incorporated. >> now you perked up. now it just happened. >> are you serious? really? did you just say that? >> there was a whole body language thing that happened. or it was just some bad tacos from last night. >> right. it was definitely not body language for you, donny. oh, my god! wow! wow! >> great stuff. >> have you seen -- just+++1dt >> what's the latest on his knee? >> well, it was a major operation. it was a reconstruction of his knee, but dr. andrews indicated that he was hopeful that he would be able to participate in the 2013 season. we'll see. i don't know. >> if you're not hopeful as a surgeon, why are you a surgeon? >> that's true. that's true. >> you're probably an undertaker. >> andrea? >> we are hoping, they say best case, six to eight months. i think that's a little optimist optimistic, but this is a very tough guy. one can just hope. obviously, this was not what anyone would have wanted. and some bad choices wer

. we should take that step. >> richard wolff, the nra is a very strange operation. they have said that video games are a big problem in promoting violence in this country. and yesterday, the nra released a free app that we'll put up on the screen that allows people to practice shooting coffin-shaped targets in the head and in the heart. and they have rated it for ages 4 and up. so much for violent video games? >> yeah, well, of course they were going after the video game makers and tv movie makers, they don't realize that they're an easy target themselves. i do think quite seriously that outrage has not proved that effective against the nra, but satire and humor can actually be. because they're a joke, a sick joke, because they don't realize how they fall by their own pathetically low standards. >> there is a new poll out today. 67% support creating a finaeder data base to track gun sales. that is something the president may be able to do with executive orders. 55% support a ban on assault weaponin weap weapons. "the washington post" poll -- 65% in favor of banning high-capacity a
to happen here. >> richard wolff, a word on joe biden today. i was struck watching him lead the way into this subject. that i really cannot think of a more effective, more valuable vice president that we have had. unless you are a big fan of torture and invading countries to get weapons of mass destruction -- you know, cheney, if you're a fan of that stuff then you have another candidate for this. but am i missing some other vice president who has played as central an important a role in getting things done in the white house? >> well, no, and the job is worth a bucket of warm liquid. so he -- cheney did not actually work his magic, his black magic through the law-abiding means, right? this is about legislation. and remember, joe biden, look, he gets a lot of criticism and mockery for his kind of folksy w ways, overly personal ways. but what he did, as you well know at that time was say we as democrats are going to be tough about crime, we're going to put 100,000 cops on the street. so there was not just the gun control piece of it. they were going to say, we're going to support law
